Apply a small amount onto a clean, dry, oil-free surface using a flat paint brush, cloth, cotton swab, or sponge. 

If you would like to remove the paste from any raised area, to have the metal underneath shine through, make sure to use the Reliefing Block while the paste is still a little tacky and has not completely dried. 

You can apply the Glaze to your dried surface to prevent oxidation of the exposed metal on raised surfaces.

We encourage you to wear gloves when using your Gilders Paste and be sure to work in a well ventilated area. Our Textured Metal sheet works very well with the paste as well as our Plated pre-stamped pieces.

I don't have must experience with other types of blackening agents but I like this one. I like it better than sharpie.

It's super messy and forget about a pretty manicure cause this stuff ain't coming out.

This is so much better than a Sharpie!!
I apply this with a Q-tip so nothing gets under my nails and it seems to apply easily without much mess.

In about 5 minutes I can use a Pro Polish pad to buff the area, and no Reliefing Block seems to ever be needed.

I don't have a manicure, but if I do get it on my fingers/ nails it washes off easily for me if done with in 1-2 minutes of it getting on your hands.
